I’ve read one too many stories where women are sacrificing their lives for the purpose of vanity. Most of the time, these women, often young and impressionable, are visiting unlicensed and unscrupulous “doctors” or they are even taking matters into their own hands and trying to do a home job which of course never ends well either.
One woman was arrested when she was busted for giving women butt injections with non-medical grade silicone. Another man was arrested after he botched butt jobs and boob jobs and was found to be a total fraud. These frauds often reel women (and men) in with ridiculously low prices in the promise of them attaining their physical beauty goals.
The saying that if it’s too good to be true it probably is goes extremely double for cases where people are getting plastic surgery at bargain basement prices. Surgery is surgery and it’s always extremely serious when your body is being cut into by a scalpel, or if anything if being inserted or injected in the same of enhancing a body part.
A recent story has a woman in Argentina tragically dying when she tried to enhance her own breast by injection vaseline into them. The problem with injections like this isn’t even so much the toxicity of what is being injected, but the fact that the injections can cause bubbles and embolisms in the blood stream.
These people who are getting direct injections of materials are risking their lives because these bubbles can cause blood clots and embolisms anywhere in the body, and result in an almost immediate death when they do.
The Argentina case was a little different in that it took weeks for the woman to start having health issues. She was admitted to a hospital for trouble breathing and eventually fessed up to injecting her breasts with the gooey substance.
The material had traveled to her lungs where it formed a blockage to one of her main arteries, which caused her eventually to die. Very tragic.
